Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

tc2037,
scsi0 isn't the device but the bus. It should be /dev/sda if its the only SCSI disk device (real or emulated) on your system.
Hmm... that would make sense. I thought there was something I was doing wrong that didnt look right. I'll check that out.



P.S. Anyone else hear the rumors that SCO (Caldera Linux for those elders of us) has "misallocated" Unix code that should never have made it into the GPL (i.e. Linux)?

I sense foul-play here from the m$ riche.

Info here Linux users do a double-take

HOWEVER:

It refuses to allow me to mount the device, even as root with the reply "...Not a valid Block device." I even went so far as to specify -o fat=16. Any ideas?

The way I got my jump drive to work was to use the hardware browser in gnome to find out what dev it was associated with....
then edit the /etc/fstab file to include /dev/sda1 then I made a directory called /mnt/lexar and associated it with the /etc/fstab and wallah!!..... mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/lexar works for me........(as root)

Ah, good idea!

As a matter of fact that worked. Im useing KDE and I just did the same thing and I also added to my fstab permissions for regular users to mount it as well.

Thanks for the info, and I like your signature line at the end


Cheers!

WOW!!!

I can't believe that this thread is still alive after all this time!
Pretty much all you have to do to get the Jump Drive working is to edit /etc/fstab in something like gedit, or if you're into S&M use VI.
Just go into the file and add the following line
Code:
/dev/sda1		/mnt/jump 		vfat	users,rw,noauto,unhide 0 0
here's the rundown:
- /dev/sda1 is the device location of where linux (should) find the Jump Drive
- /mnt/jump is just the mount point name that I gave my Jump Drive. It could be anything as long as it is a single string (ie: /mnt/mypurplemonkeydrive)
- vfat is the file system that the Jump Drive uses (or at least is the most widely usable fs)
- as for the users...unhide, they are mount options, but I don't know what each does verbatim.
- the first 0 is for the dump command (to see if the file system needs to be dumped, advanced stuff)
- the second 0 is for the order of file systems to be checked after reboot (again advanced stuff)

hope this shtick helps you all.

Are you sure your USB port is good?

Do you know that the port/drive work? Maybe you have a dual boot with windows set up?

I have seen an error similiar to this in windows when the Port was bad ... and that was with a jump drive.

Oops .. I see you have gotten it to work. I have also seen this error in Linux and simply unmounted, removed the drive from the port, stuck it back in the port, then tried the mount again, and what do you know .. it worked.

I don't know if some of the jump drives are a bit touchy or if I am just lousy at putting them in the port.

I have been following this thread and trying the suggestions

I tried Cdrecord and received the message below.

I also tried /dev/scsi0 /mnt/jump but it says that scsi0 doesn't exist. I looked at the /dev directory and there is no scsi0 file.

I'm not sure what to do next.


Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'

The device for your lexar is probably /dev/sda. You should be able to mount it like so:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/jump

scsi0 is the emulated SCSI bus ID of the drive.
